A Tree Grows In.... Kansas City

During our member Ada Diedrich's national Presidency, United Federation of Doll Clubs sought a donation to replace a tree that had died at the organization's headquarters in Kansas City. Doll Study Club of Boston sponsored the purchase of the replacement tree. The tree is lovely and has more than doubled in size since being planted almost a decade ago. Here, Doll Study Club of Boston and Regional Director Donelle Denery stands underneath this tree. Great donation, DSCB!

Thanks To You, Our 2019 DSCB Annual Fundraiser Was A Smashing Success!

It takes a village to do just about anything worthwhile, and such is the case with our great DSCB team that brought our annual event to new heights. Our esteemed guest list of 75 passionate doll collectors included folks from all over New England, the East Coast, the Midwest, and even as far away as London and Paris!

Our guest speaker, Bradley Justice Yarbrough, told the engaging story of John W. “Jack” Ryan who was instrumental in creating the Barbie line along with Ruth Handler! The talk was riveting, and Bradley did a fantastic job of delivering this history. He was also kind enough to hold a Mattel themed identification and valuation clinic for us at the end of his program.

A huge shout out to our favor team who put together the Barbie "LBD" outfit modeled above. This dynamic duo put together 75 of these breathtaking take-aways. Thank you, thank you!

A big round of applause to another devoted team member who created the incredibly eye-catching and visually stunning Barbie-profile lava lamp centerpieces. And to the remarkable seamstress who surprised all of us with homemade cloth flower corsage buttons as a "bonus" event souvenir.

And to everyone who did the real event day legwork, ranging from event check in, auction management and payout, table and venue logistics, and hospitality, it is our efforts together, and the synergies that we create as a club, that makes us shine so brightly. 

Dolly kisses and Teddy hugs to our guest, attendees, helpers, and leaders involved in this annual celebration.
